My boyfriend and I have been to the brewery before but we go back everytime we're in Toronto. They give you complimentary samples while waiting for your tour and a beer to drink while on the tour. We had Sarah as our tour guide and she was super friendly and knowledgable. The tour lasted about a half hour and covered... More

I just went there to try the beer but I was really surprised to meet really cool people. You can visit the place to see how they make the beer, I don't remember the price but it's not expensive. If you're curious like me, you can ask for a sample of the unfiltered beer. The taste is not the same... More

Fun way to spend a few hours. The VIP tour includes pizza and beer, and a loot bag for more beer.... The tour was a bit short, and went backwards (which was odd) from the packing area to the bottling area. I wanted to see where the raw ingredients go into the big vats, but that wasn't part of the...

Very informative tour, and the beer was excellent. I'll be back the next time I'm in Toronto. Also a very cool spot to go and just have a beer, and a good price too. $4 bottles, and $6 drafts. Congrats to Steam Whistle. Now 1% of all Canadian Beer sales in Canada. Kudos. Greg H

The tour was awesome and very informative. The 'banquet hall' is a great place to have a reception for any event, quaint yet elegant! To top it all, the staff are so friendly!

Took a university group to the tour today after hearing a variety of wonderful things from other patrons! We LOVED our tour guide and were blown away by our tour guide Brandon. He was so entertaining and catered to our crowd as well as everyone else at the brewery. For $10 we got 2 pints of beer, the tour and... More

Popped in on the off chance they had a couple of spaces on their tour, and we were pleasantly surprised they had one in 20 mins. Give a small free taser of the Pilsner they brew whilst waiting in the warm. The tour guide was a lovely chap, very funny and informative, we were each given a bottle of Steam... More

Walked in, mainly because the weather had turned a bit cold and windy. A friendly welcome awaits as soon as you walk in the door. It has a long bar and is a large, light and airy space. There are three guided tours of the brewery. We chose the $10 tour which gives you a very knowledgeable and relaxed tour... More

Take the tour while you visit. Just be sure to book in advance if you can as they fill up quickly with their rising popularity. Great to see most of the roundhouse being put to great use by these fine folks. I have an awesome time every time I go. 8 tours and counting!! :D
